Don’t get me wrong, society has some good bits, but there are some things that even its parents can’t like.

Poking fun at society’s bad bits isn’t going to change anything, but it keeps me off the street and might even entertain people.

I’m thick-skinned and love to learn, so all constructive criticism would be welcome,

Thanks for looking!

I like the gravity one and this. Snarky.

Thanks for the positive comments - very much appreciated. It can be a dispiriting experience, casting comics into the void without feedback, so many thanks for waving back from the depths.

It's great to see the first comment here is at around 50 views - the 2% law (about 1 in 50 viewers will leave a comment) holds strong!

I always wondered if that was true of society as a whole - about 2% of people interact as opposed to watch. There's probably a sociology PhD in there somewhere...

This is pretty funny. I like the texture of the medium you use. I suppose that we have similar sensibilities when it comes to color.
A few look a bit like they could be stills from a mid -01990's MTV animated show. The lines look like they might wiggle a bit between frames.

I enjoy the texture of the paper you draw on, and the charcoaly-ish painty-ish linework. And the jokes seem to stand well enough on their own, if a little bland (though I tend to prefer edgier humor, not observational stuff, so that's a taste thing more than anything else).

My only real complaint is that the people are triangles. I don't know why it bothers me so much, because I am OK with stick figures. Triangles just don't look enough like people. I say, either draw people that look like people or cartoonish people. Not shapes.

Abstraction: Bad!

I enjoy the triangle-shaped individuals. It's a nice departure to the typical stick figure thing we get in Art and Links.

It's a matter of taste I suppose. It just seems like with the OP's scenery skills that he could be drawing actual people, but is being lazy and not.

Aren't stick figures just slightly more anthropomorphic representations of people?

This is neat, I like it a lot. I like the triangular people, it gives a unique twist on the typical stick figure we've all seen so much of. The content itself is witty and interesting. Good stuff
